January 7 -February 5, 2011.
This set of 20 books is part of a project entiltled “Ex libris”, a work in progress initiated by the German publisher Gerhard Theween. Each artist (Mark Dion, Gunther Förg, Thomas Ruff, Rosemarie Trockel, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Lawrence Weiner, Luc Tuymans, Louise Bourgeois, Thomas Demand, Wolfgang Tillmans, Peter Doig, Norbert Schwontkowski, Thomas Struth, Rachel Whiteread, Marcel Dzama …) has been asked to choose his(or her) favourit book for a reprint edition and to create an ex libris for the chosen book. All of them also created a specific cover for the reprinted book.
Each edition has also a limited collectors edition with an additional work (drawing,c-print,silkscreen,etching…)
These choices reveal a certain number of aspects and influences of each artist’s work.
